Know the new entry times to Machu Picchu from January 2019

There will be three shifts to visit the Inca citadel. Mincetur points out that the objective is to dose the tourist flow that concentrates in the morning.

From January 1th of next year, there will be new schedules for entry to the Machu Picchu Sanctuary in Cusco, and in 2020 there will be changes in rates. The Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur) indicated that the objective is to regulate and dose tourist flows, especially that which occurs between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.

In as much, the Decentralized Direction of Culture of Cusco detailed that there will be three ranges of schedule. The first will be 6 a.m. to 9 a.m .; the second, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m .; and the third, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The owner of this entity, said that the ranks have to do with the flow of income of tourists.

He explained, for example, that in the first rank you can only enter at 6 a.m., 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. “The revenues will be hourly so that the sale of bus tickets to the sanctuary is done in an orderly manner and there is less impact,” he explained.

The closure schedule will be maintained at 5:30 p.m. He also mentioned that statistics indicate that visitors do not stay more than four hours in Machu Picchu.

Incentives:

During 2019, to encourage the entry of tourists, in the second rank they will give free access to the site museum Manuel Chávez Ballón; and in the third, in addition, an entrance to the archaeological center Raqchi, located in the district of San Pedro, province of Canchis.

In 2020, however, there will be a differentiated rate. The first group, which is in the schedule with the highest demand, will pay 20% more; in the second range the price will be maintained; and in the third there will be a discount of 20%.

At present there are two entry shifts. The first one is 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the second, of 12 p.m. to 5 pm. For each shift it is allowed the entry of 2,500 tourists maximum. Change of rates.

KEEP IN MIND

The Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, said, during a decentralized session in Cusco, that the new schedules will improve all services related to the main tourist attraction of Peru.

Machu Picchu receives 1.7 million annual visitors, of which more than 800 thousand are foreigners. 

The Inca sanctuary, located in the jungle of Cusco, generates revenues to the State for 38.5 million dollars per year.
